National Museum of Bermuda

Low Carbon has helped to fund the installation of solar panels at the National Museum of Bermuda (NMB) in the Royal Naval Dockyard. The installation is expected to generate more than 93,600kWh of clean energy per year, contributing to a significant portion of the museum’s energy consumption needs and saving 43 tonnes of CO2 per year. The project will not only contribute to the local economy but it will leave an important legacy to the museum and island in the ongoing battle to mitigate the negative effects of climate change. The panels installed at the National Museum of Bermuda will completely offset the team’s Bermuda-based energy consumption within two years and will continue providing power to the island for a minimum of 30 years. Low Carbon, as the official renewable energy partner to Land Rover BAR, has delivered more than 236kW of solar energy projects in support of the team.

Emberton

After archaeological remains were discovered on the otherwise low-grade land, the area was ‘designed out’ while ensuring maximum generation of solar power. Screened in the south and west, the development will be fully enclosed by further planting, while additional honeysuckle planting and a meadow grassland will support a variety of habitats.

Great Wilbraham

Great Wilbraham Solar Park is located adjacent to the A11, a site eventually preferred to an earlier option on nearby green-belt land. The site features trees and hedgerows of lasting value to birds and bats, while careful management is creating grassland habitats for many other species.

Branston

Branston is sited on traditionally agricultural, flat terrain ideally suited to PV, with scattered residential and farm buildings the only local dwellings. Established hedgerows and tree belts are complemented by extra perimeter planting and a biodiverse grassland, with fencing to protect new trees and hedgerows and landscaping to improve habitats.

Trenouth

Situated a few miles west of the sunny north Cornwall town of Wadebridge, Trenouth Solar Park is a ground-mounted, fixed-tilt solar PV plant, its 17 undeveloped agricultural acres matured as grassland. Among the site’s key features are more than 300,000 honeybees tended by professional beekeepers.
